Crisis Overview

Heavy rains in south-central Somalia, in upper parts of the Shabelle basin in the Somali-Ethiopian border, have caused flooding along both the Shabelle and Juba Rivers. The worst-hit areas are along the Shabelle River: Beledweyne in Hiraan region, and in the Middle Shabelle region, where there have been some river breakages. Along the Juba River, Dolo in Gedo region, and Jilib and Jamame in Lower Juba have been affected. Xudur in Bakool region has also experienced heavy rains. Although there are no reports of the total number of people affected, around 2,500 in Beledweyne have been displaced from Kooshin and Hawo Tako and are in need of humanitarian assistance.
